Hey all, Just wanted to give some feedback as im losing hope with this game. Yes i realize its only an early access game, I hope im not the only one who feels this way about the game currently. (Firstly, sorry for the "TLDR" kind of post.) I like the game style, bit laggy at times which is annoying mid-battle but otherwise runs good. I love 7DTD and its great to see a game of similar nature that is simple and has great potential..... but.... Close to level 100 now and it has become groundhog day. Ive hit a wall which i dont want to stop at, I want to keep playing this but dev's are losing me and my friends ive told about this game. Currently lvl 94ish, I can unlock and make everything! great!... its a shame i still cant make the basics like the bike. - I think ive found 4 engine parts in my total time... not to mention the 100 I need for ATV transport??? does this mean i MIGHT get to use it at lvl1000? - I have chests FULL of the same parts I cant use where i only need 1 like the ATV gas tank - Yes i hit the bunkers and high end areas but only finding 1 good weapon every now and then, does not cut it when taking on the bunker. High end areas usually have "the big one" where i usually have to leave or die... so its hard to get anything to help with progression. I really dont want a "whinge" post but the balance is way off here. the bunker thats green (easy) is out of reach and need the ATV, the next one is harder which i can hit with a few random things but still the same stuff. Nothing like the vehicle parts that i need drop.... and the third is dead and i cant get in??? Air drops dont give anything different, I cant get to the rest stop because of no bike... all leading to = " get your wallet out to progress". Id be happy it pay full price for this KNOWING you could continue to progress, Im happy to throw a few dollars to get the parts for the bike... KNOWING the progression would continue... but such unbalance at the start and reaching lvl 90 with no change... your losing me. I pray you can sort out the basics, get the core structure solid for players to continue their interest... make it a game where you can still progress with hope... not grind for weeks with no change unless the wallet comes out. I know you need income to keep the game alive by all means, loot crates are optional everywhere, but there a difference of forced selling to progress and slow progression with the option to speed things up. Final thoughts: - Dogs, i see alot of posts about them, im sure its all been said and covered, ill leave that be. Same with requirement for base upgrades like walls. - Give us a 5sec or so immunity when entering an area. Close to every time im getting hit before i can even move! - level things out. I find boxes I need a chopper to carry and I still cant find most of the parts for the bike?? - IF you cant make the drop rate higher, then sort out the crafting. let me make an engine part with a heap of metal or something... i mean, i only have like 3000 scrap metal not to mention other overflowing boxes of crap doing nothing. - cycle the NPC/real player bases. Thanks for the game, its refreshing and has greatness within... but your choice on its direction. I hope you choose wisely.
